  • Description


    We live on a farm in central Victoria one hour north of Melbourne. Together with our three young kids we run a free range (pastured) chicken farm cranking out amazing eggs that we sell at Farmers Markets, a toasty warm passive solar eco house and dreams of set up amazing permaculture gardens and an orchard.
    We are within walking distance of the Kyneton township with its amazing food and coffee.
